Do I need to bring a model with me on the day?

Do the councils receive your qualifications so I can establishprofessionally?
All the courses that are accredited with The Guild as well as other bodies, the councils recogniseand they have them on their list of approved qualifications to accept. Please note some councils have changed guidelines so you will need to contact the council direct before signing up for a course as they are all different, so it is best to check first.
What is the min age to attend a course?
Min ager is 16
I am pregnant can I attend one of your training courses?
UK law is very specific on maternity care: only midwives or doctors or those in training under supervision are legally permitted to take sole responsibility for a child-bearing women except in an emergency. This legal situation means that any therapies used during pregnancy including massage must be complementary rather than alternative to normal maternity care. The FHT clearly state that before treating a pregnant client, therapists must obtain permission from the midwife and/or GP and not carry out treatment during the first trimester (12 weeks). We would suggest you seek the permission of your GP in writing first however if you prefer not to be worked on you will not require this but you can bring a model instead.
Will I get to practise on the course?
Yes on the course you will be paired up so you can both practise on one another.
What should I wear to the course?
Any clothing should be comfortable with short sleeves or sleeves that can be rolled up. Jewellery (except wedding rings) should be removed, so for safekeeping we recommend that you leave most jewellery at home.
I have a disability or English is not my first language can I come?
Yes please make sure you email us ahead of booking so that we can accommodate any special requirements.
